Major changes from version 3.4 to version 3.5

In general, LiquidFiles v3.5 has focused on improving existing features and adding a few things that really should have been in the product a while but for various reasons haven't been added until now.

  • Support for Upload Resume. If an upload is interrupted, using an updated upload mechanism, uploads will now resume from the last completed 100MB chunk.
  • Session Timeouts — defaulting to 60 minutes.
  • Accept Cookie Alert. You can now enable to show an alert that cookies will be used when accessing LiquidFiles.
  • Rearchitected the Branding configuration making it much easier to add logos and update things like the menubar, email footers and favicons.
  • Temporary Users — replacing Access Passes from v3.4.
  • Strong Authentication Exclude Networks — if you want to enable Strong Authentication and not require it from the local corporate network.
  • Remember Strong Authentication — so that users only have to enter strong authentication every 2 weeks.
  • Require SAML — you can now require a group of users authenticating using SAML.
  • Redirect user to the SAML server if they don't exist but their email domain matches the match email domain attribute for a group that requires SAML authentication.
  • LDAP Lookup Only. Since SAML is not a direct replacement for LDAP you can now do user lookups via LDAP and not use LDAP for authentication.
  • SAML group match. If your SAML server sends the memberOf SAML attribute, you can now match groups of users using this attribute to automatically assign users to groups using SAML.
  • SAML attributes updates existing account information.
  • Sysadmins are now required to have a local fallback password. If you have sysadmins that authenticate using LDAP and the LDAP authentication fails, a sysadmin can authenticate using their local fallback password and update the LDAP settings as required.
  • When resetting a password, all other user sessions for that user id will be invalidated.
  • Updated the Admin → System → License Page, making it easier to replace license keys.
  • Added Ldap attributes for phone number and strong auth username.
  • Added SAML2 Azure configuration setting.
  • Restrict Emaildrops to only use the systems Public Hostname as email recipient domain.
  • Make Reply (as opposed to Reply-All) the default Message Reply function.
  • Fixed a security issue where a custom crafted locale file could access system resources.
  • Lots of internal fixes and improvements.
  • Updated Ruby, Nginx, PostgreSQL and other depencies and libraries to later versions.
